BRIDGES FOR MUSIC
Bridges for Music have been raising money to build a music and multimedia school in the township of Langa, Cape Town with the goal of empowering the community through music.
Through various fundraising initiatives BFM has already raised over R2-million in funds, which covers the initial build of the school.

Some of the fundraising events that have been planned for 2015 include the Tale of Us tour and The Breathe Sunshine Unity Jam Festival. Further details will be announced closer to the time.
The aim of the workshops is to create a cultural exchange between an international artist and the local producers. There will be inspirational talks about life, music, career and more to inspire the youth in those communities.
